For this class, you are using the citation style utilized by the Journal of Cell Biology (JCB). JCB uses a modified CSE style and a whole lot of journal abbreviations. Use the resources on this page to help you get your styles right.
While very similar to the CSE Name-Year style, there are some key differences between JCB style and CSE Name-Year: The examples below have the differences highlighted.
